What's your origin and is it easy to recognize where you are from just based on looks?

I think some people have certain features that make it easy to tell where he/she is from just based on looks.

  • It's not quite easy to tell where I am from lol.

    My dad is from Iraw and my mum is from the Netherlands. I was born here in the Netherlands, and I have very dark brown hair (almost black) and dark eyes :P My skin colour is slightly darker than most people here.

  • Most of my ancestry is from Western Europe and most of my ancestors were in this country by 1700. so I look very American.

    if they were to guess, since I'm mixed, but look
    more like one of them. ^.~

  • My ancestors are European, came to Brazil in different centuries probably, but not with a huge gap. I don't think it's easy though.

  • No, people from other areas think I am from Turkey or Middle East when I am from Pakistan. Furthermore our Ancestors came from Georgia two millenia ago.

  • Indian origin
    you be the judge? but I think most people do recognize me as one, unless they mistake me for an arab or muslim which can be quite annoying,
    I have also passed on as Latino sometimes

  • 90% of people have no idea where I'm from! Some people think I'm white, others think I'm Italian, I've been asked if I'm Arabic... sometimes its annoying but its actually pretty cool when people can't tell my nationality. I'm actually South American :)

  • You are right when you say that.
    Some people don't have strong features so it makes it hard to guess where they come from.
    For example:
    I can almost ALWAYS tell someone who is from Africa or Haiti by the way they look.
    I can also almost always tell when someone is Mexican, or an Italian.
    They usually have features that are very distinctive.
    In rare cases, someone looks opposite of someone from that country and I will not be able to tell first hand.

    • And even if they don't look opposite they do not have those strong prominent features.

  • I'm from a dutch/french descent and I do think it's somewhat easy to tell based off my lighter complexion.

  • A few described me as 50/50?
    So I think it's hard to guess.
    You can guess by my attire.

    Usually, people think I am Mexican, Egyptian, guineas (lol don't know how to spell) or from Sri Lanka.

    But if I am wearing my traditional clothes, then they get it right.

  • It's easy to recognize that I'm white. It's not that easy figuring out from what country I am.
